The transportation and storage sector also picked up pace and grew by 2.2% YoY from 0.7% in the previous quarter as air transport and water transport segments expanded on the back of a respective increase in passengers and volume handled at Changi Airport and Singapore's ports.
The data also confirmed annual GDP expanded 0.1 percent in April-June from a year earlier, its slowest rate in a decade, and lower than poll expectations of 0.2 percent and the first quarter's 1.1 percent. Economists in a Bloomberg poll had been expecting for a 0.2% growth for the final data.
